Hey guys, what's up? Well I live in Livingston Parish, and I recently ordered a kit from midwest supplies and Tuesday I ordered some ingriedents for my first batch. Well the website said 3 day delivery, so naturally I thought Friday I would get my ingriedents. Well midwest sent me an email saying it takes them 2 days to get it to Fed Ex, so I'm probably not getting it until Monday or Tuesday. I also wanted to ordered extra dry yeast, but it would have cost $5 shipping for a $1 product.
It's kind of a bummer, because a friend of mine and I was wanting to brew this Saturday during the day while we're both off. I'm going to have to wait until next week now. But if I could find a local brew store, I'd probably by new ingreidents just so I don't have to wait, again. I could use the ones from midwest for next weekend
Anyways to the point of my post. I really want to find a local brew supply store. I thought there was one by the LSU campus, well I called their phone number and I think they may have since closed down.
Do any of you Louisiana brewers know of a home brew supply store around here? Between Hammond and Baton Rouge would be great - but if there's not any between there, anything will do.
I just don't want to wait a week every time I want to brew a batch, and pay $10.00 shipping. Also, the situation I'm in now, it'd be nice to have a place to go run and buy a packet of yeast in case of problems, instead of paying $5.00 shipping and waiting another week, which could be problematic. If you guys know of ANY place around here, I'd much appreciate it!
